TIME: Meet at the Information Desk of the Library’s Thomas Jefferson Building at 10:15 am. Tour starts at 10:30 am. Optional lunch afterwards in the Library’s cafeteria.
EVENT TYPE: Tour
Join the WNDC’s private tour of the Library of Congress’ exhibit of the Great War, as the 1914-1918 conflict came to be known. With the nation’s most comprehensive collection of multi-format World War I holdings, the Library is uniquely positioned to portray the war through the eyes of those in the seats of power, as well as those of lesser-known participants whose lives were shaken by this turbulent time in our nation’s history. The collection includes newly digitized archival film footage, some of which has not been seen for nearly 100 years.
Enter the Library’s Thomas Jefferson Building (10 First Street, SE) via the carriage entrance on the ground level (under the massive staircase). The Information Desk is located immediately beyond security.
PRICE: Tour only, $15 Members; $20 Non-members. Those who stay for lunch will purchase their meal in the cafeteria.
